One person was killed in a house fire in the western suburbs Tuesday night. The fire broke out in the basement of the Berwyn home and then spread to the first floor.

When firefighters arrived, a family that escaped was outside, and told them Miguel Rodriquez was still downstairs. The 45-year-old old was found along with a wheelchair.

Rodriquez was taken to MacNeal Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

No one else was injured.
